Overview

Boutique Sardinian sleep with stunning Cala di Volpe views, lush gardens and two pools

The Lowdown

Though it looks down on a bay full of luxury yachts on the nightclub-studded Costa Smeralda, this boutique hotel manages to be charming, unpretentious and peaceful, with just 48 rooms and suites on a verdant Sardinian hillside. The rooms — most with sea views — nod to Med design with whitewashed wood, hand-painted headboards and an airy white palette with pops of cobalt blue. The refined restaurant specializes in Mediterranean cuisine, and the piano bar’s ocean views are so stunning, even locals frequent it at sunset.

In the Area

It’s named for the area’s white stone, but this hotel is really all about the sea — try a different beach each day, from pink-and-white Capriccioli to shallow, family-friendly Romazzino to the Aga Khan’s favorite, the Spiaggia Del Principe Beach. At night, head to Porto Cervo for shopping in the Passeggiata (Prada and Cartier both have outposts here alongside local legend Cascella), followed by carousing in the clubs.

Pleasant stay

Spent three nights and were pleased. Great view across the bay. Clean and comfortable rooms. Friendly staff. Gym was not much. Breakfast ok. Could have stayed longer. A bit away from the road but most will arrive by car anyway.

Perfect!

Like my title says, this hotel is perfect in every aspects. The room was perfect, breakfast very good with lots of choices. The staff was gentle and very nice. My room was ground floor so I just needed to open the window and there was the pool ready for jump in! Definitely a recommended!

Enjoyable Week

7 night break via Secret Escapes. Garden view room with nice patio & direct access to lawn. Fine view from room and the hotel is in a wonderful position with same great view from bar & restaurant.
The hilltop position does mean the hotel is very isolated ( nearly 1Km from local road) & car hire need to explore this lovely island. ( beware Sardinian drivers , they are all speeding/overtaking obsessives ).
Room itself is smallish but fine, bathroom a little dated. Dined in house on 4 occasions , excellent food with 50Eu four course menu available.Prices are very high on the Costa Smeralda even in local restaurants .(Would recommend Belvedere restaurant which is less than 3Km from hotel)
Very good swimming pool, & with only 38 rooms at hotel there will still less than a dozen people around the pool on any given day.
Staff were very friendly and helpful at all times.

Nice, But once enough

We only stayed two nights in this hotel. It is well appointed but our room was very small with a small balcony. Our room was on the first floor with no elevator in that area. We don't usually need elevator access, but with luggage and no assistance when we arrived it was a bit difficult.
The hotel is remote and a car is essential, although the parking is over several different levels. There is a limited shuttle service to a "sister" hotel, The Sporting, on the beach and we took advantage of this with a prearranged pickup time.
The restaurant is well positioned with wonderful views and helpful staff, The food was very good at breakfast and dinner.
There is not much else in the area and so the hotel restaurant is about the only choice.Although very nice reception areas and a great pool, we would not return because of the remoteness.

Very nice Hotel with a view

This 4 Star luxe Hotel has all what you need for a tranquil vacation. The rooms are small but ours had a huge lawn in front of the private patio and the view was over the entire Cala di Volpe bay. The restaurant is elegant with an equaliy nice view, dinner was ok, not spectacular but also very reasonably priced, even the wine. Breakfast is in the same restaurant and you are helped by a very pleasant staff and two super friendly Maitre D's . The choice is limited but sufficent and the Espresso is excellent. The public areas, bar and pool are vast, Internet is fast and they accept dogs for a charge. We looked at other Hotels but Petra Bianca was definetely the perfect choice.
